Problems with GPO replicating

Posted on 2007-10-17

I am having problems with my Group Policy Objects in AD.  First of all, I have four DC's.  I have recently invested in a program that analyzes AD to tell me if there are any problems or inconsistencies.  It has found an inconsistency in the GPO's between the DC's.  I went into the SYSVOL directory under Policies and checked the dates of the last modification and this is what I found:

Alphanew: 7/2/07 6:52 PM
Alpha: 9/25/07 8:22 PM
Bravo: 9/25/07 10:11 PM
Kilo: 7/4/07 10:17 AM

It appears that the same versions exist on Alphanew and Kilo and that a different version is on Bravo and Alpha.  Is there any way to fix this problem?  I have already forced replication but this does not seem to do the trick.  I have also done a gpupdate /force and it will not update it.

    Ok here is another problem I am having.  I finally located an object that I knew was causing a conflict in replication.  It is apparently some sort of old DNS server or something.  I was able to locate it using LDP.  It reads as the following: CN=MicrosoftDNS\0ACNF:f48074b6-b17a-479a-9313-4acad85f3654,CN=ForestDNSZones,DC=CPSOAPPS,DC=local

    I am not sure why this is in there but I need to get rid of it because it is what is causing the replication conflict in AD.  This is the object that my active directory analyzer was causing a problem.
